Cheerful service. Very prompt delivery. Great company to deal with.


I use a HP Officejet Pro 8000. Ordered 4 black because I was about to do a lot of printing for our local Horticultural Society of which I am Secretary. I only use originals having tried compatibles which refused to work on my machine. The black cartridges received from stinkyink.com are performing beautifully, and will definitely order from them again.


1st order. received in the time stated. very good.


As always, the order arrived very promptly and packed for the mailbox as requested. But do make sure you only buy the OEM HP product - the remanufactured ones don't work and I had to get a refund from StinkyInk (which arrived very promptly and without quibble).


Next day delivery - perfect for us. Thank you.
